on Jan. 24, 2013 :
The Storm of Northreach is the follow-up book to the Curse of Troius, a zombie horror adventure set in a gritty low magic fantasy world filled with well rendered characters. In the first novel, the wizard Troius has unwittingly unleashed a zombie plague on the world. In Northreach, the survivors of the initial onslaught fight to survive, as the plague spreads. Without the benefits of advanced technology, like shotguns and assault weapons, the characters must fall back on swords, spears, and the odd shovel.
The author, Alan Edwards, has a knack for quickly fleshing out characters and making the reader care about them. Unfortunately, this being a zombie novel, they all too frequently get killed off by the ravening undead. Not that that is a bad thing, by any means. By the second installment, it has become apparent, mostly, who the main characters are, but I supposed it is not too much of a spoiler to reveal that no one is truly safe.
I heartily recommend The Storm of Northreach and its predecessor, The Curse of Troius, and I am eagerly awaiting the next installment in the series.
